Officers safely removed distraught man from bridge

Posted by wlpo on September 2, 2014

Quick action by La Salle County Sheriff’s deputies and La Salle Police officers may have saved a man’s life.   Officers were called to the Shippingsport Bridge over the Illinois River Monday night for a man that was threatening to jump.

The man had one leg over a railing when officers were able to grab him as another officer was talking to him.  The man was taken to Illinois Valley Community Hospital to be evaluated.
